JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 14-year boy who suffered a stroke at school would be paralyzed on his left side had it not been for the neurovascular surgeon who worked alongside the pediatric neurosurgery team at Wolfson Children's Hospital.

Jordan Mason suffered a stroke while he was in class in January. Children like him have the chance to both survive and thrive thanks to Baptist Health Stroke and Cerebrovascular Center director Dr. Eric Sauvageau and the team at Wolfson Children's Hospital. 

Sauvageau was able to save Jordan's mobility by removing a blood clot in his brain.
